“Book with caution! Rooms like a prison.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2010

Before booking with this hotel ask about the size and location of your room.
We made a reservation 2 months in advance and when we arrive we were assigned to a lower floor room-almost underground that looked more like a prison cell then a hotel room. We were told that nothing else was available and they couldn't move anyone else as everyone in the upper floor rooms had requested that floor. We ended up leaving so I am not able to tell you anything about the hotel. My word of caution is to be very specific about where your room is located and stay away from the ground floor!
